5.0 out of 5 stars If it moves, run over it, 3 Dec 2002

This review is from: Carmageddon 2 (Video Game)
This game is so much fun to play. The only rule is that there are no rules. Where is the fun in completing lap after lap of a race while trying to avoid running into anything? The real fun lies in the mayhem and destruction you can cause, and the makers of Carmageddon 2 understand this. Running over simulated, screaming pedestrians is just plain fun and a great stress-reliever. So is totaling the souped-up cars of your virtual race opponents. I think the original Carmageddon game is better in terms of general playability, but this second installment in the series introduces all kinds of goofy new stuff (which, by the way, only makes much more obvious the fact that this is just a game and has nothing whatsoever to do with real life). You’ve got your standard greased tires, jelly suspension, exploding barrels, and the like, but now pedestrians can magically grow or shrink, turn into stick insects, blindly enter into the path of your oncoming vehicle, etc. The Iron Maiden soundtrack, I should add, is great music to drive destructively to.
I have only one complaint about this game. In order to advance to higher level races, you have to “qualify” for them—this can involve such challenges as completing so many laps in a certain amount of time or running over strategically placed pedestrians in so many minutes. There is little fun to be had in these challenges, and one in particular has left me stymied longer than I care to mention. I just want to be let loose in a crowded city and run over everything and everyone in sight, and I have yet to get a look at some of the higher level racing venues because of the annoying and unnecessary challenges I am expected to complete.
Frankly, I’ve never understood the controversy surrounding this game. At its worst, it really isn’t that gory or disturbing at all, especially when compared to first-person shooters (which I also enjoy, I might add). I cannot believe anyone would take this game seriously enough to complain about it, nor do I see any problem with parents letting children play it. Of course, such a decision rightly rests with parents, and the Mature rating is right there on the box to guide them.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best driving simulator, 22 Nov 2002
This review is from: Carmageddon 2 (Video Game)
Death, destruction and roadkill. This game allows you to do everything you've wanted to do in other driving games, run people over, smash up the other cars and generally run amoc in cities, the country side and where ever you can.
The game is a improvement on the original, with better graphics, more amusing pick ups, cooler weapons and a brillant sound track. My only gripe on the game is the 'Timed tracks', which means you actually have to be able to drive property in a race, and don't have the option of finishing the race by other means. They slowed progesion through the game to the point were i gave up.
However it is a must for closet psychopaths, people who suffer from road rage, or people who just fancy taking off-roading just a little further. It is not for kids or people who don't find blood, guts and bad jokes amusing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Timeless gameplay, 7 Nov 2003
This review is from: Carmageddon 2 (Video Game)
Just rediscovered this game after it had been lost and forgotten about. You can get it to work under Windows XP, the problem is the copy protection. I'm glad to say that this game has stood the test of time. It's still hugely playable and addictive. The cars can be a little bit difficult to handle, I found it easier to resort to the keyboard. You soon get used to the quirks though.
It's a great way to spend the cold winter nights and is always going to be something you can come back to after any stretch of time, even after you've completed it. Well worth it's asking price in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Car Splatter game, 14 Oct 2014

This review is from: Carmageddon 2 (Video Game)
Classic car splatting game. Great fun moving through herds of cattle or pedestrians. Fun tracks (some a bit too difficult though, it's Carmaggedon 2 not Precision Jumping 2) and very varied and fun cars. If you have been living under a rock and not heard about this game it is very simple. You drive a car. You splat things.
